Q: HiRes picture of bicycle towing a Airstream

My company's name Zilverline is based on my Airstream (71 Overlander). We're moving to a new office in Amsterdam, NL. And we've made a graffiti artist make an Artist impression of the A/S.

Now we want to complement that with a huge print of an Airstream and that's why I am looking for a high resolution picture of Alfred Letourneur towing a 22 foot long Airstream. Can you help me with that?

kind regards,
Michael Franken

Is that the famous bicycle towing an Airstream picture? I have a poster of it framed, hanging in our living room at home, but I don't know where to get a decent high resolution version of the original. Airstream probably has it somewhere and probably owns the rights to it.

Also, from what I've heard, there were multiple shots of the event, some taken from the opposite angle.

Check with the "Mothership" as they still sell copies of the print "framed".

Here's one twice that size, but ultimately just another scan of a postcard:

You may have the best success by:
1) In Photoshop, use the best one you can find and scale it up to the size you want,
2) make sure you're at 300 dpi,
3) apply a smart blur filter, perhaps followed by smart sharpen - or instead, posterize.

This won't look like a photo from close up, but you can get it to be very sharp... and be very recognizable from a few feet away. This is how I'd probably go about it. Good luck!

Looks like you are headed downhill. How about a brake controller? or at least really good brakes on the TV ;-)
